What is the Lead Pipe Replacement Program?
Many homes in Hamilton and its surrounding areas have been equipped with lead pipes. Lead is a harmful metal that’s long-term exposure has been proven to affect the nervous system and cause blood and brain disorders especially in small children.
Typically homes built before 1955 have used lead pipes throughout. Half-inch lead pipes can contaminate the home’s water supply and should be immediately replaced with three quarter inch copper pipes. Not only will this ensure the health and safety of your family, it will increase water pressure throughout.
The City of Hamilton has initiated a program whereby homeowners can receive up to $2000 for the replacement of lead water pipes. Homeowners may have their water pipes tested by the city.
